148  rPraise the Lord!

Praise the Lord sfrom the heavens;

Praise him, all his angels;

Praise him, sun and moon,

praise him, all you shining stars!

Praise him, you vhighest heavens,

and you wwaters above the heavens!

xLet them praise the name of the Lord!

For yhe commanded and they were created.

And he zestablished them forever and ever;

he gave aa decree, and it shall not bpass away.1

Praise the Lord cfrom the earth,

you dgreat sea creatures and all deeps,

efire and hail, fsnow and mist,

gstormy wind hfulfilling his word!

iMountains and all hills,

jfruit trees and all kcedars!

10  lBeasts and all livestock,

creeping things and mflying birds!

11  Kings of the earth and nall peoples,

princes and all rulers of the earth!

12  Young men and maidens together,

old men and children!

13  oLet them praise the name of the Lord,

for phis name alone is exalted;

qhis majesty is above earth and heaven.

14  He has rraised up a horn for his people,

for the people of Israel who are tnear to him.

his praise in wthe assembly of the godly!

Let Israel xbe glad in yhis Maker;

let the children of Zion rejoice in their zKing!

Let them praise his name with adancing,

making melody to him with btambourine and clyre!

For the Lord dtakes pleasure in his people;

he eadorns the humble with salvation.

Let the godly exult in glory;

Let hthe high praises of God be in their throats

and itwo-edged swords in their hands,

to execute vengeance on the nations

and punishments on the peoples,

and their nobles with fetters of iron,

to execute on them the judgment kwritten!

lThis is honor for all his godly ones.
